Just spent 2 fabulous weeks at Birchwood House. Steve and Dawn are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. Accommodation is superb, spotlessly clean, food is great. Highly recommended. Easy access to all amenities.

A lovely warm and homely place to stay with all the family! Dawn & Steve went above and beyond for us, especially staying with a vegan husband, a fussy teenager and a toddler! Couldn’t have asked for more! The rooms were absolutely spotless and the breakfast was the best we’ve ever had! Really made our holiday extra special! Not to mention it’s within walking distance of pretty much everything you would want to do in Paignton! Massive thumbs up from The Watsons!!!

Dawn and Steve made us feel welcome from start to finish. The whole place is outstandingly spotless, I own a cleaning company so I do know about cleanliness. The breakfast is honestly the best we’ve ever had and nothing was too much trouble. Steve’s homemade jam was a massive hit with my fussy granddaughter. Dawn was always happy to see us at breakfast and was always smiling. They’re both fantastic hosts and we will definitely be staying again. They made us feel like part of the family and we really didn’t want to leave. Can’t recommend this place enough. Just wonderful in every way. 😁😁😁

Steve and Dawn are excellent hosts, providing a great atmosphere and a fantastic brekkie! Attention to detail is paramount in this b&b, and nothing is too much trouble! High standard of cleanliness in the rooms and communal areas. Great place to stay, with a great network close by to get to places of interests Ps. Great Chinese restaurant within walking distance 😜
